The final selection is a fragment left unfinished the night he died. The last word that I have to say as a theologian or politician is not a concept like grace but a name: Jesus Christ. He is grace and he is the ultimate one beyond world and church and even theology.

The final selection is a fragment left unfinished the night he died. The last word that I have to say as a theologian or politician is not a concept like grace but a name: Jesus Christ. He is grace and he is the ultimate one beyond world and church and even theology. We cannot lay hold of him. But we have to do with him . . . There is no salvation but in this name. In him is grace.

Reviews about Final Testimonies: (3):
Mr_Mix
Karl Barth's Final Testimonies is a short and beautiful collection of his final words. They were written in the last months of his life while he was ill. And the weight of his words are heavy and profound. One can't help but be moved by the solemn tone of this work and I am grateful his contribution.
godlike
Moving and fascinating collection of some of the last thoughts ever written by Karl Barth. It was moving to see Barth's dedication to Jesus Christ all the way until the end of his life. Definitely of interest for readers of Barth, though this is certainly not an introduction to Barth nor does it containt a summary of his theology.

Karl Barth (1886-1968) was a Swiss Reformed theologian who wrote many crucially-important theological works (e.g., Church Dogmatics: A Selection). This book contains his final writings for publication, done from August-December 1968; the last selection, in fact, is a fragment that was left unfinished the very day he died.

He wrote in the first essay, "(Jesus Christ) is for me in particular precisely what before me, outside me, and alongside me, he is for all Christians and indeed for the whole world and for all men. He is this specifically for me too." (Pg. 13) He later adds, "Grace itself is only a provisional word. The last word that I have to say as a theologian or politician is not a concept like grace but a name: Jesus Christ. He is grace and he is the ultimate one beyond world and church and even theology." (Pg. 29-30)

Elsewhere, he explains "when I call myself liberal what I primarily understand by the term is an attitude of responsibility... Being truly liberal means thinking and speaking in responsibility and openness on all sides, backwards and forwards, toward both past and future, and with what I might call a total personal modesty." (Pg. 34)

He insists, "The hierarchy, theologians, a priesthood? No such distinction exists. I, too, am a layman. A layman is simply one who belongs to the people... One has studied theology and another has not, but the one who has studied theology ... is not for this reason better... than the so-called layman." (Pg. 35) He explains, "That is why I call my book 'Church Dogmatics.' Church here does not mean that the church is responsible for all that I say but that I as one member of the church have reflected on what may be perceived in revelation and tried to present it to the best of my conscience and understanding." (Pg. 36)

Barth's final written words will be of great interest to anyone interested in modern theology.
